    Wait until fracking pollutes the water in their district, and then when they call the EPA, no one answers the phone.
    Did a drug manufacturer put a drug on the market without testing it properly? Oh, well, there's no FDA to enforce all those laws that Congress wrote.
    Maybe after writing these platforms, they should have someone read it back to them so they'll think: "Wow, that sounds batshit crazy, we'd better fix that."
    Naah.

      So if you bring up those examples they'll say "oh goodie!"

      That's why I started with marijuana and LSD.  Those things they hate, and will immediately whine for bringing back the FDA.

      Department of Agriculture? How will the farmers subsist, let alone make a profit? They might even want Commerce and Energy if they stop to think about it.

      OK, I realize thinking is no longer done by the Iowa GOP.

      Maybe they already have fracking pollutants, not to mention all kinds of FDA regulated drugs in their water - what they have left anyway.
